The review of this Movie prepared by Julia F.

The ultimate tale of a topsy turvy romance, Kate Hepburn juggles the charms of ex husband Cary Grant, cynical Jimmy Stewart, and fiancee John Howard. The race to the alter is on in this delightful romantic comedy! The Philadelphia Story brought Kate back into popularity, and gave Jimmy his only Oscar.
